The Lido.


The Lido cafe has been a staple in the the Wellington hospitality scene for over 20 years. During this time we have quenched many a thirst, filled thousands of bellies and as of recent months worked to develop unique menus to suit the seasons, times and surroundings.

We believe in unprocessed freshness, plant-based seasonality, and sustainable creativity when it comes to the food and beverages we choose to serve. .
We are open for breakfast, lunch, brunch and dinner. See our opening hours, Check out our menus and pop by if you fancy.

Chef-owner, Frank De Roose has spent nearly two decades behind the stoves in the Lido kitchen. He knows the ins and outs of our little corner and has fine tuned The Lido where he saw fit.

Frank grew up in Belgium, sustained by French-influenced, local Flemish cuisine. His travels in short, influenced him to implement a collection of plant based dishes and incorporate a Mediterranean/Middle eastern feel to our menu; alongside our classics.

The Lido is a welcoming day café, great brunch spot and an ambient dinner option.
